Cyberpunk 2077 Japanese Dubbed Script Teased by Japan Localization Manager

Cyberstacks 2077.

Today, CD Projekt Red has revealed that it’s upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 has finally gone gold after a fair few delays. But now, the game will certainly be arriving on November 19, 2020. However, have you wondered how large the game is going to be? Well, a behind the scenes celebration photo kind of shows how big the script is, at least when it’s localized into Japanese.

Yuki Nishio, CD Projekt Red’s Japan localization manager took to Twitter to celebrate the announcement of Cyberpunk 2077 going gold, detailing that it’s a big milestone, but there’s still more that needs to be done. The main focus though is the images that are part of the tweet that seems to be, as Yuki Nishio states, only part of the Japanese dubbed script.

All I can say is, whew. That’s a lot of pages. Cyberpunk 2077 is already said to be a large game that includes the main story, with different paths for the player to take. There are also said to be side-quests that branch off into their own little stories.

The Japanese dub has already been teased by the studio through a short video you can watch below in which several characters sit down and have a conversation for nearly 4-minutes. I wonder if this scene was just 3 pages from the above image?

CD Projekt Red is currently facing criticism due to the recent report that said that the studio is requiring 6-day work weeks to prepare the game for launch. Last year, however, there were promises that developers would not have to crunch. However, earlier this year, the studio said it would be expecting employees to crunch to some degree in the final stages, and now has enforced the 6-day work weeks as the game draws near its release.

Cyberpunk 2077 is due to be launching November 17, 2020 and will be available for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X /S. It’ll also be heading to Google Stadia at a later date.
